on sunday, house minority leader nancy pelosi and majority leader eric cantor laid out the economic dividing lines. >> what we need is growth. we need growth with jobs. and if you have spending cuts, education of our children and other investments like the national institutes of health where you are hindering growth, you're not going to reduce the deficit. so it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem that we have to address. we think the deficit and the national debt are at immoral levels. we think they must be reduced. we're sick and tired of paying interest on the national debt. and that's 15% -- that's a large percentage of the budget. >> the tax fight for the president means higher taxes, more revenue. again, we can't be raising taxes every three months in this town, david. and you know, the bottom line is we want tax reform, but we want to go plug thosepresident talks bring down tax rates because we think that's pro-growth and we can let the economy grow and let people earn more money and keep more of it. the president's not talkin
not getting the spenting under control. bill: nancy pelosi says it's a false argument to say we have expanding problem. >> the president said something similar to speaker boehner. of course, we have spending problem. bill: speaker boehner has been on the opposite side of that for years now saying the president got cold feet when it came to getting big deal and not forced into sequestration. >> i think the president had a great hunt in october and early december to get a lot of these things out of the way and he chose not to. it's time for the president to lead. and we wouldn't be going from one crisis to another. when you refuse to lead you allow yourself to be defined by crisis. why is it we are constantly churching from one crisis to another instead of solving these problems. i'm ready to solve them now, i think we should have solved them last year. but we did increase taxes last year on the group the president said was the solution for solving the revenue problem. it's a big issue to handle. we'll catch up the hearing tomorrow. senator mccain suggests for every three retirees, replace one a
knows we need growth and nancy pelosi was talking, we need growth on the sunday shows and that was the message from mitt romney in the first debate where he did well and even conservatives start today say look at him, we like mitt romney. we didn't know if we loved him, but we love this guy. that's what he's talking about is growth and how you stimulate the economy. where has the growth been. the last quarter of last year, we went down and we contracted. we didn't grow at all we contracted and now the unemployment rate is when barack obama first took office at what point do the american people say, you aren't doing it? >> we're probably past that point in washington a long time ago. you referenced the poll and talked about pessimism and more and more talk about the new normal, an unhappy economy and that's the way that things are going to be, another poll or another question in that fox news poll. do you think that the president's stimulus worked in 2009? no, you don't think that it worked. he's proposing another round of this. i think at a certain point this becomes a
in washington. we have a health care problem. it cost too much. then we heard over the weekend nancy pelosi said on the chris wallace show, washington doesn't have a spending problem. do you agree that? >> no, i don't. i think washington has a tremendous spending problem. and the only way we're going to get the deficit in control is to cut spending and have comprehensive entitlement reform. it's unconclusionable to leave this kind of debt to our children and grandchildren and they would not have the same opportunities that we've had if we leave them with this extreme debt here. so we have to accept responsibility to do something about it. i think again that, what dr. carson was saying. >> steve: yeah. i know you're a democrat and you feel that way, but what about the members of your party in congress? it just seems like don, we love you, but we don't agree with that. >> i think there are many democrats democrats who do. if you look at president clinton's pen you're, his fiscal policy was much more to the center. >> steve: we thank you for joining us on this busy news morning. >> thank you. >> st
% believing our government has a spending problem. nancy pelosi had this to say on fox news sunday. >> it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem that we have to address. right now we have low interest on the national debt and it is a good time for us to act to lower that deficit. we think they must be reduced. we are sick and tired of paying interest on the national debt. that is a large percentage of the budget. it is lower now because of the lower interest rate. dagen: i do not speak pelosi. let me see if i can translate what she was saying. she does not believe there was a spending problem. the budget deficit and budget cap should be fixed -- >> i think she is talking out of her -- i do not think there should be any tax increases. i think it is time for the fiscal deficit to call it off and a clear victory. there are signs we have gone too far too quickly. left or right, i am very happy to hold off on these tax increases which i think will appeal to a lot of people. i am in equal opportunity growth guide. both sides of the
side of things we have nancy pelosi saying there aren't spending problems. where is the middle ground? >> the middle ground is you have to deal with this the way that you and i would deal with it at home. you can't do something for two months or five months or six months. you have to look out over ten years. that's why simpson bowles, you pick one. the alternative minimum fix, if you accommodate them in a thoughtful plan. sadly what congress and the president has looked at rosily is this month it's taxes on rich people, next month it's sequestration. it's not a way to do business. >> steve latourette, thank you for your time. >>> still ahead, we continue to monitor the big news coming from italy. who tops the list of those who could be the next pope? >>> plus we'll have reaction from clergy here in the united states. >>> and this afternoon congress will once again take up the violence against women act. congresswoman gwen moore joins me to talk about what made this not so controversial legislation political incendiary. yes she is, yes she is.

with the economy? you've had nancy pelosi over the weekend saying the fact that we have a spending and debt problem is a false argument. you've got him disbanding the jobs council. so i'm not optimistic, but it does appear that he's going to pivot to the economy now. at this point he's starting to look like a ballet dancer, and i hope he makes the right decision. jon: andrew, do you agree the economy is the number one issue? >> no doubt about that. i do disagree with the issues that he talked about, i definitely believe that the economy is number one for the public, and that's where the president is going to focus tomorrow night. jon: well, if the economy is the number one thing, chris, he did get reelected, essentially, you know, on, well, i mean, mitt romney hammered him on the economy, and president obama still got reelected. >> well, he did. i don't know that he did a great job point out the challenges to the economy. we saw the economy start to rebound. but half of americans still believe we are in recession. so this could kind of be the nixon goes to china time for obama. if he were to reach
